Cause of Panic= Some of us can't afford to buy 2700+ shows at $20 a pop but will try our best to download them for free :)

Hm, if such an attitude is widespread, then perhaps I can understand if the Dead were to want to place limits on the availabilty of some things.

For instance, many "regular" LMA bands ask for the accomodation to have dates placed off limits if they match- or are even being considered for- commercial release. Some even place all SBDs offlimits. We do that willingly for them in the regular collection. There's even a FAQ about it:

I’m not sure what “attitude” I’m conveying by admitting I don’t have the $56,000 to spend on shows (2700X$20). I think most of us buy Dick’s Picks and the Vault releases, mostly because their quality is hard to beat, but my point is simply I hope we don’t have to go the pay route on EVERY show. Cheers.

I do think its a shame that some great shows have been pulled for profitable download.but look at it this way....weve been blessed to get all that weve gotten for free over the years..i repeat for FREE...shouldnt look a gift horse in the mouth so to speak.theres still a whole lot of garcia phil and friends and such to get that if you started downloadin now you prolly couldnt burn it all off your computer in a year.look at the allmans theyve been allowin tradin for herds and pulled ALL there stuff off downloadin sites a few years back.enjoy what we still have here.
ps thanks to the LMA people for there hard work and deadication to keepin this site goin....
